Sorry mate, I somehow overlooked your question.

Planned? Nothing planned.....apart from riding it! Mine's stock standard apart from bash plate, engine bars, centre stand, luggage stuff and tyres. As a back road tourer it fits the bill perfectly for me......I haven't even adjusted the shock spring pre-load!

Just ticked over 10,000k's and I really like it....... Smooth, comfortable and cheap to run.....a bit more fuel capacity would be nice but it's not too bad......the other day I did 265 k's on 10.17 litres.

The Much Maligned XT660R

Just a bit of info on the bike I've got, 2009 XT 660 R with nearly 30 000km on it and it has never missed a beat.
The Europeans love these bikes, to the point that they are the European DR 650, complete with large range of accessories
as you guys have been discussing.
Fuel range it really it's only weakness, but mine has a Gillimoto Tank so range is increased to over 400km, unfortunately
now gets a speed wobble under some conditions due to the tank having no internal baffles, but other than that it's pretty
good.
Last year I rode from Melbourne to Brisbane to present at the HUBB Rally and I was the only rider on an XT there.
Felt a bit left out among the sea of overweight, old aged KTM owners.

Does any one else in Melbourne own/ride one or is it just me?

All Loaded on the Strezleki Track

All Loaded on the Strezleki Track only hrs before i high sided the bike over taking a Road Train through a creek crossing.I torn the ACL Ligament and PCL. The bike had only superficial cosmetic damage. I rode a further 195 klms to medical assistance. While riding i had my left leg just dangling down the side - had to stand on one leg to change gears then flop back down in the seat. Through one off the dips i forgot to raise the leg and it hit the road - i gave birth to ten babies feck that hurt.

Hey XTLuke, any chance you've got some hi-res photos to share of your brute? Keen to have a close look at the Gilimoto tank.

Hi motormail, if you want to have a close look at a Gilimoto tank I am up at Toowoomba.

Let me know and maybe we could catch up one day.

In the Thumpers forum there are a couple of threads on XT660's with pics as well.

Have you looked at the Gili-moto site, they are on facebook as well.


Shane.

I fitted some 30mm bar risers but took them off straight away because I thought the clutch cable was too tight.

Then noticed that it seemed pretty tight anyway, ie even without risers.

Has anyone else encountered this issue and found a solution?
